Terms and Conditions
This Extended Limited Hardware Warranty is effective upon expiration of the standard 2 year warranty.
Extended equipment warranties and manufacturer hardware support for the FLEX-6400(M), FLEX-6600(M), and FLEX-6700 applies only to the original purchaser and are not transferable unless an extended warranty transfer agreement is purchased from FlexRadio. FlexRadio may elect to transfer the extended hardware warranty to a third-party. A Return Merchandise Authorization (RMA) number is required before sending in a product for service. An RMA number is issued by FlexRadio by submitting a HelpDesk support ticket and undergoing troubleshooting procedures with a technical support engineer. Any product returned for service that is out of warranty, has had its warranty voided, or no hardware issue is found is subject to a one (1) hour diagnostic bench charge (currently $99 USD and is subject to change). This charge will be applied to any work performed. Return shipping charges may be applicable.
Where is it available
The extended warranty is only available for purchases in the USA.

FlexRadio will also correct any failure caused by defective parts and materials. The complete unit must be sent to FlexRadio at your expense in the original shipping container or other packaging sufficient to prevent damage in transit.
